Orlando Man Arrested For Sexually Assaulting His Girlfriend’s Daughter
An Orlando woman caught her boyfriend engaging in sexual acts with her daughter and contacted authorities according to law enforcement reports.
The 45-year-old man was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, molestation and sexual battery of a child in addition to other charges.
On July 6, 2012, just after 9:00 p.m., the woman saw her boyfriend performing sexual acts with her daughter in her home. He fled the residence on a bicycle but was promptly detained by law enforcement personnel. He was taken into custody and held without bail.
Information provided by the Florida Council Against Family Violence indicates the variety of issues and problems that victims of childhood sexual abuse face, such as physical, mental, social and sexual disorders. A national study from 2009 revealed that more than 6 percent of all children had been the victim of a sexual crime within the past year. About one in 10 children had been victimized at some point in their life. The most common age group victimized ranged from 14 to 17. Additional studies indicate that underreporting skews these figures downward, which in reality could be a huge amount of cases.
Florida enforces tough laws against convicted sexual predators. The person must disclose all email accounts and names used for instant messaging to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The state mandates registration for a long list of offenses. If the convicted felon committed a similar offense in another jurisdiction, he also needs to comply with registration requirements in Florida. Some of these crimes include kidnapping a minor under 13 years of age, luring a child, sexual battery, prostitution of a minor, sexual activity with a child, lewd or lascivious offenses against a minor, computer pornography and sexual misconduct. The convicted person faces extensive restrictions on where he can live, work and spend his free time. Any violation of these restrictions could easily lead to another arrest. A conviction for a sexual offense can often prevent someone from working in the education or medical field as employers search the sex offender data base prior to offering employment to a person.
